my story

​Sewing has been a big part of my life since I was in elementary school and continues to be that way today. It would not be an exaggeration to say that I sew at least 6-8 hours a day (and love every minute of it!). I switched from dressmaking to quilting in the early 1980's and have enjoyed seeing how the industry has changed over the years. Quilting inspiration can be found everywhere, from our gorgeous Hill Country landscape to the bright, bold colors of today's new fabrics.
